- The antibodies segment was worth $15.0 billion in 2007. This is expected to increase to $18.1 billion in 2008 and $36.9 billion in 2013, for a CAGR of 15.4%.
Protein drugs for human therapeutic use are a 1,000 metric ton industry-more than one billion grams of bulk proteins that garnered formulation sales, on average, of $27.80 per gram in 1999. This study estimates 1,048,859,344 grams of bulk drug proteins were produced worldwide in 1999. Approximately 1,150,573,386 grams will be produced worldwide in 2004, representing an overall 1.9% average annual (compound) growth rate from 1999 to 2004.
Recombinant biological methods provided only 0.1% of the worldwide total bulk drug protein production in 1999, but are projected to provide 0.6% of the total production in 2004.
